I have had an upset stomach since Monday. At first I thought “Oh no, I have given myself food poisoning.” I made a fall dish (a turkey/dressing bake) on Sunday that my family was not crazy about. The kids picked at it and Michael didn’t eat it all but I had a huge helping of it! So I immediately went to “Oh great I have poisoned myself.” No one else has an upset stomach in the family, although Lilina does have a fall cold.
Sitting on the couch Monday night it crossed my mind, “Oh Lord, what if I’m pregnant!?” I said to Michael, “If you got me pregnant, I am going to kill you!” Then I was trying to make him count back and help me remember when we did it this month. (You know I am bad at math!)
By Tuesday I was starting to think I have just caught Lilina’s cold, and it’s just affecting me in the stomach. I have caught a stomach bug.
I am still not feeling great today, and for now I am going with the stomach bug theory and not the pregnancy one. However, as a woman you always have in the back of your mind, it could be pregnancy.
What conclusion do you jump to when you’re nauseous or not feeling well in your tummy? Do you immediately go to pregnancy? Do you think you food poisoned yourself? Or do you immediately go to stomach bug?
